Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and love is in the air!
But before you hit the closest Tiffany’s or spring for an embarrassing display of roses, may I suggest giving something truly unique and heart-felt this year?
This gift is something not found in stores.
It certainly won’t fit in a box.
And while it may be paid for in dollars, it is a gift that’s truly priceless and will hold deep meaning and value for generations to come.
So what is this ultimate gift of love?
There is simply no better way to show your loved ones just how much you care about their well-being and security, now and forever more, than to get your financial and legal house in order.
By doing so you telling your loved ones, “I want to make sure you are taken care of…. physically, financially and emotionally, no matter what life throws our way. I want to make sure the courts, federal government or disgruntled relatives ever get in the way of my wishes for you. I want to protect you today, tomorrow and long after I am gone by means of this gift.”
If that doesn’t express true and forever love, I don’t know what else does.
So may I suggest saying “I love you” with action and passing on the candy and jewelry and instead giving a gift this year that says “forever” better than any rock, piece of metal or flower arrangement ever could?
